Title: Computing Whitehead products using Sullivan minimal models

Zoom: https://uregina-ca.zoom.us/j/99127226830?pwd=bnFQR1R3UUdyWUxqSS9JMExMRlZwZz09

Abstract:  I will explain how a Sullivan minimal model of a space encodes the Whitehead product on rational homotopy groups, namely as the dual of the quadratic part of the differential. I will look at a few examples and computations.
